Stauffer v. Brooks Bros. Inc.

Stauffer v. Brooks Bros. Inc. false marking standing Fed Cir 2010


Raymond E. Stauffer and the government appeal from the decision of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York dismissing Stauffer's false marking qui tam action for lack of standing. Stauffer v. Brooks Bros., Inc., 615 F. Supp. 2d 248 (S.D.N.Y. 2009) ("Standing Op."). The government also appeals from the court's denial of its motion to intervene. Stauffer v. Brooks Bros., Inc., No. 08-cv-10369, 2009 U.S. Dist. Lexis 51166 (S.D.N.Y. June 15, 2009) (""Intervention Op."). Because Stauffer had standing to bring his claim, and because the government had a right to intervene, we reverse on both grounds.
